  1. Ain't It A Shame

From the recording Lonesome Road

Lyrics

God bless my good friends
Who take such fine care of me
They clap my back and laugh and say
I fall for every good woman I see
Most will let you down easy
I’m like a well worn walking cane
But not you gal, you’re weighing down
Heavy on my mind again

Ain’t it a shame I ache for your name
I’m calling across the river like a whooping crane
Ain’t it a shame the way I love you
And your own man don’t

I’ve walked many a mile
In many stinking shoes
I know enough about mistakes
To see the love he’s lost for you
But don’t let me deter you
I’ll go the way I came
Just keep me easy on your mind
Should you wonder what might have been

Ain’t it a shame it couldn’t be more plain
You’re trying to keep a fire in the driving rain
Ain’t it a shame the way I love you
And your own man don’t

God bless my good friends
This next round is all on me
You get me through the hardest days
And today’s no anomaly
Any time you want to
Gal just call on me
I’ll leave these good old boys behind
And they’ll toast my memory

Ain’t it a shame what never became
You wear your heart like a ball and a chain
Ain’t it a shame the way I love you
And your own man don’t
